Ha April Fools!
LYNNWOOD – The Edmonds Community College softball team announced the signing of Finland National Team member Lirpa Sloof to a NWAACC Letter of Intent on Wednesday. Sloof is a right-handed power pitcher and an accomplished switch-hitter.
Sloof last played in a 30-game tour against national competition in the summer of 2011. Against some of the world’s best teams she went 24-1 with a 0.32 ERA and 312 strikeouts in 199 innings pitched. The only blemish on her record was a 3-2 loss to team Canada, though Sloof accounted for both Finland runs by hitting two solo homers. During the tour she hit .650 with 17 round trippers and 54 RBI.
